* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'': There's that one Krogan during Mordin's loyalty mission who decides it'd be a good idea to [[EvilGloating proclaim his own and his clan's superiority]] instead of killing Shepard on sight. This encounter might also "coincidentally" be that one time where Paragon players [[KilledMidSentence activated a Renegade action prompt]].
-->'''Shepard''': You talk too much

Frequent offenders in Wrestling/RingOfHonor such as Wrestling/RoderickStrong have been greeted with "Please Don't Talk".

Added DiffLines:

* Among the other examples in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' one of Vivianne's stands out as a well timed right wing assault on ISIS and the Arab Spring: her response to asking about mages fighting mages is; condensed and quoting directly, some have declared war on the entire free world, and those opposed to wholesale murder are forced to take up arms to defend themselves against these terrorists.

* Septon Meribald's 'Broken Man' speech from A Feast for Crows may qualify with two pages of almost nothing except Meribald sharing his views on military deserters with Brienne and Podrick, its actually a very heartrending speech and one of this tropers personal favorite moments from the books.

* Arguably, Vegeta from DragonBallZ. While he isn't the voice box of Akira's personal beliefs, he is known to wax on and on about his Saiyan heritage and his grudge against Goku. The obvious example would be during his second fight with Goku as Majin Vegeta. ''Twice'' in that same fight he goes on a long-winded speech about why Goku has humiliated him, shamed him, etc. He even gets one more speech in during the final battle with Kid Buu as he explains to himself (and the audience) why he now can finally admit that Goku is better than he.

* The main character of ''Gimmick!'' launches into a long rant about the evils of propaganda after his backstory is revealed, in which [[spoiler: he's tricked into helping create a propaganda ad for the War on Terror, which convinces one of his friends to join the army and end up dead.]]

* A literal example on ''TheWestWing'' (in an episode aptly titled "''The Stackhouse Filibuster''"), where a senator filibusters in order to delay voting on a crucial health care bill so that he can add on a provision for autism care and research.

* In the Literature/StarTrekNovelVerse, Federation Councillor Bera chim Gleer of Tellar is infamous for these. According to one novel, ''Literature/StarTrekArticlesOfTheFederation'', he's never had a speech on the council floor go shorter than forty-five minutes...and that was when he had a cold. Usually it's twice that, minimum.

* In an episode of ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'', a character played by guest star Patton Oswalt engages in a political fillibuster that consists of him offering his thoughts for the plot of future ''Franchise/StarWars'' films- which basically consists of a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover with the MarvelCinematicUniverse. While the speech was significantly shortened for the actual episode, a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BBhNkywMJY full length version]] (that goes on for almost 9 minutes) was released on the internet prior to the episode, and went on to become somewhat memetic.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', a ''fervent'' priest of Talos will stand before the statue of his god outside Dragonsreach and Jorvaskrr and shout a constant, unending sermon extolling the virtues of Talos and maligning the [[ScrewYouElves Thalmor]] who tried to ban his worship. Since you're likely going to be constantly running back and forth between Dragonsreach, Jorvaskrr, and your house in the city, you'll be hearing him a ''lot''. He's also not particularly important, so most players just kill him.

* There are long, boring and banal speeches explaining the Creator/MarqusDeSade's insipid nihilism and justifications of selfishness and cruelty in almost all his works, the most famous being "Justine", "Juliette" and "Dialogue between a priest and a dying man".
